Molly Bloom

[singlepic id=589 w=320 h=240 float=]

The voluptuous and flirtatious wife of Bloom.  Molly (whose full name is Marion, maiden name Tweedy) is a 33-year-old singer.  She was raised in Gibraltar by an Irish military man; her mother, Lunita Laredo, is a dim and exotic memory, possibly a dancer, possibly something more questionable.  She spends virtually the entire day in bed, first alone after Bloom leaves, then with her lover “Blazes” Boylan, and then during her nighttime monologue in the final chapter.
